Opiates are made from opium, a white liquid in the poppy plant. They're also referred to as narcotics. Left over may be called Dode.

Poppy powder is made by grinding dried buds from the dried plants and it is openly sold in Brampton, Mississauga (ontario) at Indian meat shops

Opiates can produce a quick, intense feeling of pleasure followed by a sense of well-being and a calm drowsiness. But they can also become an addiction. If someone uses opiates again and again, his or her brain is likely to become dependent on them.

There are serious addictive symptoms after lengthy use of the powder- Redness of eyes and slurring of speech, loss of appetite and weight, lazy, has difficulty in communicating, is oversleeping & has less interaction with the family members.
General effects of opiates / narcotic analgesics include: sedation, slowed reflexes, raspy speech, sluggish movements, slowed breathing, cold skin, and possible vomiting.

A big mess!

The brainstem controls things your body does automatically, like breathing or coughing. Opiates can act on the brainstem to stop coughing or slow breathing. (blue)

The spinal cord transmits pain signals from the body. By acting here, opiates block pain messages and allow people to bear even serious injuries. (yellow)
